Description:

Very tiny little bug. Black with red spots/dots. Makes me think it might be some sort of ladybug, but I have no clue.

Ek het nou gaan kyk nou jou kamera. 18Mpixels. Jy behoort op macro naby fotos te kan neem sonder probleme met die standaard lens. Crop = sny 'n stukkie van 'n groot foto uit om 'n selfstandige foto op sy eie te wees. Ek is jaloers.

Yip, I did. I'll play around this weekend, need to also study-up on all the lingo. i'm pretty new at this, but enjoying it tremendously.

If I recall correctly, you bought a new camera. Investigate the macro settings. You should be able to get good enough shots to crop from with the standard lens. Most of my insect photos are crops of fotos, since I don't have the option of changing lenses.

Unfortunately, i don't have a lens (yet) that can zoom in to that teeny-weeny scale, so the quality is not too great.

Mari, I think that it is what I suggested, but it will give you something to go on if I'm wrong.
